They don't take any wind.
They shift zero in the sun.

In this manner is the balance of the universe maintained.

We has a shoot yesterday in the sun , everyone on the plinking range took a few shots looked up scratched their heads and went for the top turrets , wind blowing very gently towards us , everyone's aim points had moved down ,mine went from 40 to 45 plus, just took it on board and got on with it , funny enough most people fell out the bottom of a 45ydr in the same direction, that was also out in the open sunny field !, however the long shots in the woods didn't suffer from that , hmmm
